. it comes with a big warning about the next big risk. here with that our chief science correspondent, robert bazell. >> reporter: the report out today illustrates huge strides in the fight against cancer which kills one in four americans. the death rate down more than 20% in the last two decades is attributed to improved survival from the biggest killers, lung and colon cancer, for both men and women. breast cancer in women and prostate cancer. >> the public should be ecstatic we are seeing these kind of reductions. but they need to realize the battle hasn't been won. >> reporter: experts emphasize the kind of death rate is not due to the expensive new drugs we hear about. instead they point to people smoking less and early detection, especially for breast and colon cancer. still, this year, an estimated 1.6 million americans will be diagnosed with cancer, and more than 580,000 will die from it. according to the report, the death rate for melanoma, often caused by sun exposure, is rising. and there is major concern about obesity, which affects many cancers, including liver, breast and colore

three weeks away. jim is a professor of political science. good morning. president obama delivering the state of the union in a few weeks. today's speech a preview of that? >> to a certain extent his themes will be broadly -- the problems facing the united states and what he has in mind. i don't think he'll get into too many specifics in the address today. i think he'll be talking about unity and getting together to solve our problems. because even though there are a lot of specific items like gun control, the economy, that he wants to address, he cannot get any of those things done if congress doesn't cooperate with him. pleas for unity will be a strong theme of this inaugural address because he does need congress to come together behind him. that's one of the lessons he learned in the first four years is you can have an ambitious agenda but if congress doesn't cooperate you won't be successful with that. >> can he bridge a gap between parties in the second term. we are making progress on that. john boehner tried to get his own party together. he's taken a few of the more extreme p
